This is one of my favorite kind of daisies. I bought some of this 'Grenada' cultivar variety at Lowes. I did not know they were refered to as gaillardia or blanket flower, I had always heard them refered to as painted daisy or desert daisy. They are extremely hardy in the intense NC heat. I planted some under my 17 ft tall sun flowers and they are an excellent contrast. They have been blooming from early Summer, well into early Fall. Sandra.
